Number >> fromString: handling of exponent letters is inconsistent and incomplete

Number and its subclasses inherit or implement fromString:, which creates instances of the appropriate subclass from the argument string. Not all legal floating point syntax was understood, and some not strictly legal syntax was accepted.

Legal syntax is provided in the GemStone BNF, in $GEMSTONE/doc/bnf.txt.
